One arrested, another on the run after major drug bust

One man is still on the run following what police are calling a major drug bust in Johnson County.

Police say a couple in the Thelma community were responsible for a large drug trafficking operation.

Police found marijuana plants close to 15 feet from the home of Frank Childers and Connie Meek.

Police arrested Meek during the investigation, but Childers has not been found.

Meek faces several charges.

Officials say they got some of the information about what was going on by reading Meek's diary entries.
